Proposal for Recognition of Decentraland in Future Grant Recipient Projects (POLL)
This Draft Proposal outlines the purpose and the process for adding specific requirements to future grantees, in order to foster Decentraland’s brand and Decentraland DAO’s awareness.
This proposal aims to add specific requirements to future Decentraland DAO grant agreements, for recipients to acknowledge the support of the Decentraland DAO. This would help raise awareness of Decentraland’s support for innovation and community initiatives, and enhance the platform’s reputation. Since there is a separation of Decentraland Foundation and Decentraland DAO, all mention of Decentraland is in regards to the DAO.
To enhance recognition and community confidence in Decentraland DAO, we propose that all future grant recipients prominently acknowledge the support they receive. This acknowledgment should be displayed on their websites, marketing materials, or other relevant platforms. Currently, only the Sponsorship category requires brand awareness.
We also recommend establishing an official social media account for community updates and marketing purposes. This will not only raise awareness of Decentraland’s role in supporting innovation but also enhance the platform’s visibility and reputation.
We suggest that these requirements be included in all future Decentraland grant agreements. While the choice of social media platforms—Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc.—is at the grantee’s discretion, having an active official social media account is recommended. However, it’s mandatory for grantees receiving a Social Media grant.
Note: The recommendation for all grantees to have a social media account was suggested during the polling period. After input from the GSS, it was decided to make this a recommendation, not a requirement, except for those receiving Social Media grants.
By ‘prominent acknowledgment’, we mean clear, visible recognition of the support received from Decentraland DAO. This could take the form of at least 1 or more of the following:
“This project is generously supported by the Decentraland DAO. Visit [https://decentraland.org/] to learn more about their commitment to fostering innovation and creativity within the virtual world.”
Note: This is only to acknowledge the support given from the Decentraland DAO.
Either option would be considered sufficient acknowledgement.
The options under Marketing and Social Media will have to be viewed on the google doc as there is not enough space to the complete the full proposal here.
These will also be put in the first comment box so it will not be necessary to click a link for those that do not wish to.
By implementing these requirements for future grant recipients, we can ensure that Decentraland receives appropriate recognition for its contributions to the growth and development of the virtual world. This will not only benefit Decentraland’s visibility but also help foster a sense of community and collaboration among the various projects supported by the platform. The use of social media as a tool to support the Decentraland DAO and build community confidence will further strengthen the relationship between grant recipients and the Decentraland ecosystem.
